More Info on Hanging Rails & Fittings
Here are a few of the questions you may have about hanging rails and fittings.
What are Hanging Rails and Fittings?
Hanging rails are bars that can be placed along a wall. The fittings are the parts that hold the bar in place. Typically, there are three pieces that make up a hanging rail set up. This includes the rail, brackets, and sockets. The rail is the bar that you can hang things from. The brackets are what hold the bar in place. The socket adheres to the wall. The bracket rests inside of the socket.
How Do You Select the Right One?
There are many factors you need to consider when selecting hanging rails and fittings. The biggest factor you will need to consider is the weight of the items you are placing on the rail. Generally speaking, the more weight you are placing, the thicker you want your bracket, socket, and railing to be. This ensures it can hold the weight of the items you are hanging on there. Another factor to consider is colour. Sockets, brackets, and railings are available in a wide array of colours including brass, silver, gold and white. Lastly, you need to consider the type of metal the items are made from. Some are made from chrome, while others are made from aluminum. Aluminum rusts and bends more readily than chrome. But it is also cheaper. Considering all of these factors will help you select the rail and fittings that are best for your needs.
